I've just come to a shocking realization: Not everyone can have what they want... I think...
A hear many people saying they loathe the gear grind and while I agree I also keep hearing they want distinct gear so they never look like someone else... and this got me to thinking...
People dont care about gear because by the time you level it'll be replaced with some other carrot on a stick that offers only a fractional benefit. People want gear to matter again, and that entails gear lasting more than 30mins.
But people also never want to look alike.
But isnt this counterintuitive?
Because in order for everyone to look different there has to be more gear, but by adding more it dilutes the gear-pool. Unless of course studios are comfortable with developing the same gear with the same stats with only cosmetic differences. That would be very inefficient.
So, by making everyone unique we end up making gear worthless?
